DA-ACPC, LandBank roll out Expanded SURE Aid program
Agriculture Secretary William D. Dar and Landbank President Cecilia C. Borromeo handed over P15,000-worth of check to each farmer-beneficiary in Zaragoza, Nueva Ecija, highlighting the launch of the Expanded Survival and Recovery Assistance Program for Rice Farmers (SURE Aid) in Zaragoza, Nueva Ecija on September 2, 2019.
“While Nueva Ecija is the number one rice-producing province in the country, marami pa rin ang mahihirap na magsasaka dito. Kaya naman, napili naming inilunsad ang SURE Aid program para maiahon sa kahirapan ang mga magsasaka at kanilang pamilya,” Secretary Dar said.
Initially, more than 1,000 rice farmers from Zaragoza and other towns in Nueva Ecija received the P15,000-SURE Aid program, a joint initiative of the Department of Agriculture through the Agricultural Credit and Policy Council (DA-ACPC) and Land Bank of the Philippines (LandBank).
Dar said the SURE Aid program is one the measures of DA in partnership with LandBank to help farmers recover from the impact of the low palay prices. He ensured that the government is doing everything to reach more rice farmers, initially those tilling one hectare or less.
“They may avail of a one-time, zero-interest, no collateral loan amounting to P15,000, payable in eight years,” the Secretary said.
Dar added that the DA-ACPC has simplified the loan process to only three hours.
“While it is a short-term solution, this will surely have long-term implications,” Dar said.
To prop up dampened palay prices, Dar successfully convinced top rice-producing provinces to directly engage in palay buying, drying, milling, and rice marketing and major parts of the rice industry value chain.
Further, Secretary Dar asked LandBank President Borromeo to provide soft loans, with two percent interest, and payable in three to five years, for provincial local government units (LGUs), farmers' organizations and cooperatives, and agribusinessmen to enable them to venture in the entire rice industry value chain.
Dar directed the National Food Authority (NFA) to implement an "accelerated roll-over scheme," to speed up their palay buying and rice marketing operations, by up to four cycles, creating a significant multiplier effect.
He also directed the NFA to immediately sell all of its imported rice in the market.
“Dapat ang isip po natin ay pagnenegosyo na may puso. Sa DA ang mga pinuno at empleyado ay dapat may puso at damdamin rin sa pagseserbisyo sa mga magsasaka at mangingisda,” Dar said.
The DA chief said that he will also seek the strong support of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) on enhancing the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps). He said instead of cash transfer, 4P beneficiaries should be given rice every month bought from the NFA or provincial LGUs.
Sen. Cynthia Villar, through a message read by her chief of staff Atty. Rhagee Tamaña, said that under the Rice Tariffication Law (RA 11203) three agencies under DA will play major roles in managing the P10-billion annual Rice Competitiveness Enhancement Fund (RCEF).
These include the Philippine Center for Postharvest Development and Mechanization (PhilMech) that will manage a P5-billion annual budget for farm mechanization; the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) for provision of in**ed seeds and technology, worth P3B; and Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) for training and extension, worth P500 million.
Of the annual P10-B RCEF, P1B was allotted to LandBank and Development Bank of the Philippines, at P500M each, for credit assistance; and P500M for TESDA, skills training and enhancement.
Villar said, while it will be hard in the beginning, the government will ensure that farmers will be benefitted. She hopes that the rice industry roadmap crafted by DA will provide lasting solutions to the worries of farmers.
“Kahit maubos ang oras namin, magtutulungan kami ng DA-ACPC at LANDBANK upang maiparating ang programang ito sa mga magsasaka,” she added.
“Di kayo nag-iisa sa laban na ito. Mahirap po talaga, pero nawa’y maging ito ang unang sigaw ng magsasaka na lalaban tayo sa kompetesisyon,” she added.
LandBank president Borromeo said the SURE Aid program will be released through the farmers' LandBank automated teller machine or ATM cards.
“As we speak, the loans are being processed, and afterwards they can withdraw it from their ATM," she said during the program launch.
The DA-ACPC will provide LandBank with the validated list of qualified farmers under the SURE Aid program. ###

Department of Finance
Will PH rice be able to compete globally? YES!
Following the passage of the Rice Tariffication Law, tariff revenues from rice imports are now allocated to the Rice Competitiveness Enhancement Fund (RCEF), which will boost our local farmers’ productivity. RCEF programs include providing quality seeds to increase average yield, modern machinery and equipment to reduce labor cost, and other programs such as extension services, credit, and financial assistance that will help improve milling and handling efficiency.
The RCEF also provides for crop diversification programs, titling of agricultural rice lands, and expanding crop insurance for rice.
As of mid-July 2019, the rice tariff collection under RLA amounted to P6.5 billion and is expected to exceed P10 billion. The RCEF is on top of the funds allocated for the National Rice Program and the programs of the National Irrigation Authority - all this to improve the competitiveness of our local rice farmers!

#TECHNOTIP Bamboo, once known as the poor man’s lumber, is considered today by many enthusiasts as the “green gold.” It serves as material for construction, handicraft and furniture-making, fish pen, and other agricultural and industrial uses. Bamboo yards can be found in the provinces as market outlet. Bamboo poles can also be bought from plantation sites.
Bamboos can be used to rehabilitate large tracts of denuded land. Its wide range of adaptability to adverse soil and climatic conditions make it an ideal crop reforesting barren and grassland areas in the country. A fast-growing plant with a massive root system, bamboo is effective in controlling soil erosion and stabilizing riverbanks.
For site preparation for bamboo propagation, prepare the planting hole in advance. Each hole should be wide and deep enough to accommodate the potted propagules. The bigger the planting hole, the better for the growth of the propagules.
This August 12-16, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources is hosting the 1st ASEAN Bamboo Congress in Iloilo City. This international forum aims to give researchers, academe, policy-makers, and private and public individuals to exchange information and updates on bamboo and sustainable environment strategies within the ASEAN region.

DA TARGETS 200,000-HAS.
FOR SORGHUM PRODUCTION
By Manny Piñol
As the world faces a grim prospect of tight supply of pork in the face of the devastation caused by the African Swine Fever on China's hog industry, the Department of Agriculture is embarking on a program to increase the production of feed grains by targeting 200,000 hectares to be planted to Sorghum by the First Quarter of 2020.
The Sorghum Production, estimated to be between 800,000 to 1-million metric tons per harvest, is expected to complement the country's corn production needed to bring down the cost of feeds for both the hog and poultry sector.
Target areas for the Sorghum Production Program are Coconut Areas where it will be introduced as a secondary crop, Ancestral Domain Areas and Upland Rice Areas which are planted only once a year.
Sources of Sorghum Seeds are now being identified with the United States for the hybrid and India for the OPV as preferred suppliers.
Sorghum Program head Director Lorenzo Caranguian, in the last meeting of the livestock and poultry sector, said the ambitious expansion program came following successful regional field trials conducted by the DA.
Sorghum which was introduced to the Philippines about 40 years ago, never really gained popularity as a source of protein for animals because of the absence of support from government.
Studies show, however, that Sorghum has a higher protein content than Corn and is tolerant to long dry spell needing only 35% of the water needed by corn.
Another advantage of Sorghum is its ratooning quality which allows three harvests with just one planting.
Its stalks also remain green and succulent even when it is mature for harvesting thus making it an ideal silage material for cattle and small ruminants.
The Sorghum Program will be supported by a loaning program of the DA Agricultural Credit Policy Council (ACPC), the Agriculture and Fisheries Machinery and Equipment (AFME) Loaning Program which extends loans at 2% to poultry and livestock growers to establish their own village-level feed mills.
The supply of pork in the world market is expected to get tight next year because of the widespread devastation of the hog industry in China and other Southeast Asian countries, including Vietnam and Cambodia, and many parts of Europe.

PRRD FERTILIZER PROGRAM
STARTS DRY SEASON 2019
By Manny Piñol
Rice farmers in irrigated areas of the country, estimated at 1.2-million hectares, will be the first beneficiaries of President Rody Duterte's National Fertilizer Support Program which will provide 9 bags of fertiliser for every hectare on No-Interest Credit starting October this year.
The program, which was crafted by the Department of Agriculture (DA) following a directive by President Duterte to "provide fertilisers to farmers", will initially cover farmers who plant rice in an estimated 4.7-million hectares every year.
It will be implemented by Planters Products, Inc., a farmers' corporation which is supervised by the DA, which has already implemented a similar program with a repayment rate of 99%.
The PPI on Thursday signed a Fertilizer Supply Agreement with a Dubai-based Russian company, Vigorous Alliance, which will deliver to PPI the needed volume of fertiliser on a 6-month credit.
Vigorous Alliance Chief Executive Officer Merdan Gurbanov and his colleague, Lev Dengov, arrived in Manila last week following a visit to Moscow two weeks ago by the Secretary of the Department of Agriculture of the Philippines and officials of PPI and the CIIF-OMG.
Under the National Fertilizer Support Program, farmers who belong to the Irrigators Associations, the Small Water Impounding Projects Associations (SWISA), the Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries and associations or cooperatives, will be properly identified by the Regional Offices of the DA.
The identification and validation of the rice farmers and their areas will start immediately. This will be undertaken in cooperation with the National Irrigation Administration (NIA), the Department of Agrarian Reform and the Local Government Units.
Each validated farmer will be issued the Juan Magsasaka Identification Card which he will use in claiming his fertiliser supply.
He will get 9 bags of fertiliser recommended by the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) which will consist of four bags of Urea, four bags of Complete and one bag of Muriate of Potash.
The farmer beneficiary will automatically get an insurance coverage from the Philippine Crop Insurance Corporation to ensure that if his crops are destroyed by calamities, he will be able to repay his fertiliser loan.
The farmer will be asked to repay his fertiliser loan after harvest to enable him to avail of another round of fertiliser support for the next planting season.
Vigorous Alliance CEO Gurbanov assured PPI that the price of fertiliser which will be sourced from Russia and other Eastern European countries will cost less than those being sold in the market and will be of better quality.
The Fertilizer Supply Deal between Vigorous Alliance and Planters Products is the major accomplishment of the trade and promotions trip of the DA Secretary to Moscow who was assisted by the Department of Foreign Affairs through Philippine Ambassador to Russia Carlos D. Sorreta.
The National Fertilizer Support Program is the first attempt by any administration to provide farmers with the needed fertiliser for their farms to increase their productivity.
What makes this program unique is that there are no government funds involved and is purely a private-to-private engagement facilitated by the DA and the DFA.
With proper fertilisation, rice productivity is expected to increase by at least two metric tons per hectare.
